Business continuity planning

Business continuity planning is a process developed to counteract systems failure and is essential to businesses, regardless of size and sector. A Business Continuity Plan is required to ensure that we are able to function in the event of an emergency. Unplanned events may arise, such as the foot and mouth epidemic in 2002, and the floods in 2005, 2009 and 2015.
